we would by all means give them a favorable
notice, and that it was • already prepared for
publication. They then returned to the portico
of the office, and were shouted to by citizens
and told that now was the time—it must be
done, that the citizens here wished it done, and
they had plenty of backing. They again en

and they commenced the work of destruction,
by upsetting cases and throwing them into the
street. I remained in the office until every
thing was thrown into the street except the
press. Under my writing table was a large
box containing rare and valuable selections of
a private library. As they came to it I pro
tected against its destruction, telling them that
it was private property that had nothing to do
with the printing office. They declared that
made no difference, and their imprecations
grew louder and fiercer. As they were drag

Iv le - wonderful how Dime people become en
slaved by their theories.—lfraahinyton Chroni
Yes, and Forney is not an exception—nor is
the administration, whose organ he is. But it
is less wonderful that they should become en
slaved by their theories, than that they should
undertake to enslave others to them, which is
the case with Forney and those whom he now
Serves. It would matter very little to the peo
ple how much Mr. Lincoln and his sUpporters
are enslaved by their new-fangled Abolition
ideas and theories; but it greatly concerns the
people to find that every means of persuasion
and power, artifice and tyranny, are being used
to enslave them to those ideas and theories.
The Sentence Upon Vallaudighaut.
The N. Y. Sun says: "If this sentence is
carried out, it will be in defiance of the opin
ions of the great mass of the American people.
No government in Europe would dare to resist
so strong an expression of public sentiment, as
the proceedings against Mr. Vallandigham
have thus far elicited. We cannot believe that
the President and the administration can be so
criminally indifferent to the signs of the times.
The Union can survive the assault; of all the
armed and disarmed Vallandighams of the
South and. North, but it cannot long exist with
out free speech and trial by jury."
What Will They Do With It?
Supposing the accounts which we have from
Gen. Grant's department to be true—that a
great victory has been achieved and the im
mense rebel army collected for the defence of
Vicksburg been either captured or demoralized
—the first question that suggests itself to our
mind in reference to the success obtained is,
"What will the administration do with it ?"
They will use it either wisely or unwisely—
either for weal or for woe. Which will it be ?
To judge them by their antecedents, we have
every reason to fear that it will be unwisely
nsed,for certainly no administration could have
shown less statesmanship or less true patriot
ism than has that of Mr. Lincoln.
But let ns hope—it is all we may—that, in
the providence of Clod, they may be influenced
to the adoption of a sounder policy than that
which they have been so foolishly and so wick
A proper use of this great victory—modera
tion and wisdom in this hour of triumph, may
be attended with the happiest results—may,
before long, restore peace, and with it the re
establishment of the Constitution end the re
toration of the Union.
But a blind persistence in the policy of ab
solute subjugation—an- adherence to the mad
design of abolishing slavery or disrupting:the
Union in the attempt, can only end in accom
plishing the latter, and so bringing ruin upon
this whole people.
If the men who now are at the head of this na
tion, instead of wisely and patriotically improv
ing the occasion offered by the brilliant success
of our arms, shall only grow proud, more confi
dent of carrying out their scheme of subjuga
tion and emancipation—shall only harden their
hearts and go blindly onward in the course
they have marked out—there can be but one
result—destruction of the government and
ruin to themselves in common with others ; for
they would be the veriest madmen to suppose
that in the downfall of millions they alone whO
caused the ruin would escape.
If all wisdom has not departed from them—
if they are not utterly forsaken of Heaven and
given over to destruction, they will seize the
moment of victory to hold out the olive branch,
to disavow their sectional policy, and invite a
return of the people of the revolted States to
full membership in the Union as it was under
the Constitution as it is_
Any other policy than this will turn the
fruits of victory to ashes on our lips, and de
stroy every hope of a happy issue to the war ;
for a people Wm the poorly of the south oannOt
be subjugated—and if they could, they would
be no longer Of us, nor would the government
be that which the blood and wisdom of our
fathers gave us.,
We confess that we have lost all confidence
in this administration—in its wisdom and in
its good intentions; but we may be somewhat
mistaken—we earnestly pray that we are—for
on the realization of that hope, as we said
before,Nepends the fate of the nation.
Vallauffigham—The Sentence Executed.
We have to-day further tidings from Vallan
digham. The sentence of the President is by
this time probably put in execution=the fate
for a time of the illustrious martyr, who has
been the shining mark of executive oppression,
is settled by the ostracism of a tyrannous edict
passed with all the seeming sanctity of author
ity. Unconvicted, in defiance of his-protest
and the solemn assertion of his loyalty, in
utter disregard of facts which prove his inno
cence of charges brought in the very wanton
ness of kyle/mess agaiatt him, in epito 6f all
his claims to the citizenship and the protection
of a sovereign State, he has been coolly kid
napped and carried into exile by those who
recognize and obey the professed administra
tors of the law. The first flush of feeling
which the reception of the news of his arrest
and subsequent condemnation produced, was
one of unbridled anger and indignation. The
liberty of the nation had been insulted, the
sacred immunity of person, which has descen
ded to us in the dearest trat7.tione of our hie
tory, was felt to have been ruthlessly violated
and set at naught. Public meetings were at
once called to resent the act; the conservative
press and many journals of opposite proclivi
ties vainly pronounced the seizure unwarran
table, impolitic and dangerous. The calm
conclusion which must now rest in the minds
of all right-thinking men will decide how
great is the enormity, how ominous must be the
tendency of the outrage. To the late meet
ing at Albany, which took place before the de
livery and execution of the final sentence, Gov.
Seymour wrote :
"It is an act which has brought dishonor
upon our country ; it is full of danger to our
persons and oar homes ; it bears upon it front
a conscious violation of law and of justice.—
Acting upon the evidence of detailed informers,
shrinking from the light of day in the darkness
of night, armed men violated the home of an
American citizen, and furtively bore him away
to a military trial conducted without those
safeguards known in the proceedings of our
"The transaction involved a series of offen
ces against eur most sacred rights. It inter
fered with the freedom of speech ; it violated
our rights to be secure in our homes against
unreasonable searches and seizures ; it pro
nounced sentence without a, trial save one
which was a mockery which insulted as well as
wronged. The perpetrators now seek to im
pose punishment, not for an offence against
law, but for a disregard of SP, invalid order,
put forth in an utter disregard of the princi
ples of civil liberty."
The military upstart and his presumption,
were thus deliberately judged by the safest
and soundest statesmen of our time. Of the
Metal endorsement. of the government with an .
equal sagacity he said :
" If this proceeding is approved by the gov
ernment and sanctioned by the people, it is
not merely a step towards revolution, it is revo
lution ; it will not only lead to military des
potism, it establishes military despotism. In
this aspect it must be accepted, or in this as
'Feet it must be rejected.
" If it is upheld our liberties are overthrown.
The safety of our persons, the security of our
property, will hereafter depend upon the arbi
trary wills of such military rulers as may be
placed over us while our coustitutional guar
anties will be broken down."
The proceedings of the drum-head tribunal
have been approved by the government—
whether they will be endorsed by the people
remains to be seen. A precedent is estab
lished for the future which will meet with
effectual resistance or be the beginning of a
reign of terror. The passionate outburst of
popular feeling has subsided for the moment ;
but should temerity beget confidence and
lead to other experiments upon public peace,
the present calm may only prelude the com
ing storm. The observations which follow in
the succeeding extract from another portiOn of
this memorable letter, will press . themselves
upon the consideration of every thoughtful and
reflective mind :
" It is a fearful thing to increase the danger
which now overhangs us bythreatening the law,
tha judiciary and the authorities of States with
contempt. The people of this country now
await with the deepest anxiety the decision of
the administration upon these acts. Having
given it a generous support in the conduct of
the war, we now pause to see what kind of
government it is for which we are asked to pour
out our blood and oar treasures.

Another Outrage on Free Speech.
The accounts we give from our correspond
ents and the western journals of the scenes
attending the late meeting of the Indiana
Democratic State Convention at Indianapolis
will be read with emotions of profound alarm
and indignation by all fair-minded Republicans
as well as Democrats. The malicious pro
ceedings of Hascall, the military satrap in that
district, were clearly intended to provoke a
collision with a peaceful assemblage Bo as to
give him an excuse for some new outrage, but
his intent was happily thwarted by the forbear
ance of the Democrats in attendance. Hascall
planted cannon in the street and placed sol
diers in the hall to overawe the delegates; he
closed the liquer shops to citizens but left them
open to gangs of drunken soldiers, who were
permitted to go about grossly insulting unof

general row. With rare aelf•oontrol tha Dem

resenting them on the spot. Foiled in thii

It seems almost certain, from the course the
military authorities are pursuing in the West,
that it is their deliberate intention to provoke
an outbreak, so as to give the President an
excuse for declaring martial law and setting

North. That theory alone will account for
outrages such as those perpetrated by Burn

NEW YORK, May 26.—The Tribune's Mufreea

dressed the guards, asking the attention of the
Federal officers : " I am a citizen of Ohio, U.
S. of America, and sent *Rhin your lines
against my will. I hope you will receive me
as your prisoner." He was then promised to

There are many preparations sold Under the name of
Bitters, put up in quart bottles, compounded of the cheap
est whisky or common rum, costing from 20 to 40 cents
per gallon, the taste disguised by Anise or Coriander Seed.
This class of Bitters bag caused, and will continue to
cause, as long as they can be sold, hundreds to die the
death or the drunkard. By their ue the system is kept
continually under the influence of Acaolic Stimulants of
the worst kind, the desire for Liquor is created and kept
up, and the result is all the horrors attendant upon a
drunkard's life and death.

I do this more readily in regard to "flooffand's German

the impression that they were chiefly an alcoholic mix

Esq., for the removal of this prejudice by proper teats,
and for encouragement to try them when suffering from
great and long continued debility. The use of three
bottles of these Bitters, at the beginning of the present
year, was followed by evident relief and restoration to a
degree of bodily and mental vigor which I had net felt
for six months before, and had almost despaired of re
gaining. I therefore thank God and my friend for di
recting me to the use of them.
